Anne Shore Sleep-Away Camp Program
About the Program
The Anne Shore Sleep-Away Camp Program offers 9- to 15-year-old children a wide range of two- to four-week summer sleep-away camps throughout the Northeast. The 1199SEIU/Employer Child Care Corporation administers the Anne Shore Program, enabling parents to select the best experience for their child. Diverse offerings include camps that emphasize athletics, fine arts, technology and outdoor adventure, as well as traditional camp experiences. All participating camps are independently owned and operated, and are accredited by the American Camp Association. Camps for children with special needs are also available.
Child Care Corporation staff does everything it can to ensure that the camps offered are among the best available. Find out more about the process of applying for the Anne Shore Sleep-Away Camp Program and attending camp.
Sleep-away camp can be a challenging transition for both parents and children. Although it is a transition, camp affords children the opportunity to enhance their physical, intellectual, emotional and social skills. In turn, these skills help promote independence and self-confidence. To aid in the transition, the Anne Shore Sleep-Away Camp Program provides a variety of informational resources for parents, such as Handling Homesickness.
Furthermore, Anne Shore’s Annual Camp Fair, hosted each fall, educates families about the various camp offerings. 1199SEIU members can speak directly with camp staff and gain a better understanding of the unique summer experience that each camp offers.
